THE DOG ATE MY FILE

Finally, the perfect pet for those averse to the pooper-scooper. Unlike the three-dimensional breed, these dogs won't munch files, but they will bark, play, eat, sleep, learn tricks and develop their own personalities, thanks to artificial intelligence. Adopt the pooch of your choice from the Dogz, Your Computer Pet CD-ROM or the company's Web site (http: //www.pfmagic.com/dogz/adopt).

$19.95. PF Magic, 800-482-3678, 415-495-0400.

By a long shot!
